Lonesome George (c. 1912 - June 24, 2012) was the last Pinta Island Tortoise in existence. His subspecies was wiped out by invasive feral goats who devastated the native vegetation, leaving nothing for the tortoises to feed on. Found to be the only survivor of his kind, he was relocated from his native island in 1971 to the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz Island where he stayed until he died of old age in 2012.

"Are you in school?"
"Well I just finished medical school to become a medical assistant." Just then she got a phone call, swiped open the touch screen and effortlessly held the phone up to her ear. I waited patiently as she tried to work out some logistics with a family member. "That was my grandma. She’s on her way to pick me up and take me to my dance studio."
"Yeah, you should come to my performance."
I told her I would absolutely love to.
I’ve seen the first image go around with captions about how this is what L most likely looks like, given that L is a quarter Japanese and three quarters European. But this whole image set by Bobby Raffin is way too cute! The awkward images at the end just suit L so perfectly and they’re unsettling in a way that gives the perfect impression of just how uncomfortable and bizarre a presence L is to be around.
Which is a roundabout way of saying I have the weirdest boner right now.
I like how the shirt isn’t immaculately white— even reading the manga I had the impression that for all the money this guy had to be rolling in, he should look way more like a hobo.
You know, more than he already does.
This definitely captures my mental image of the character.
made of pepper, curry, honey, biscuit, noodles, cheese, oregano or flour, these artworks are awesome. All have a special character or style. Let them entertain you to be creative with your surrounding. But don’t play with food, instead respect it!
